EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (TBD) – In a venture of cosmic proportions, Mattel’s Girls Division has partnered with the International Star Registry® and Abrams Gentile Design to create the first doll and star naming kit in toy history. Shining Stars® dolls will provide girls the opportunity to have their own place in the cosmos by naming their own star. Each cuddly doll comes with a star naming kit that includes an International Star Registration star naming form, an official certificate and a celestial map to identify the unique coordinates for each star. With this innovative toy concept, Shining Stars can truly be recognized as the gift that keeps on giving…forever!

“By introducing Shining Stars, Mattel’s Girls Division continues to bring excitement to the doll aisle with fun new themes to engage girls,? said Lisa Gaudio, vice president/Girls Division, Mattel. “Whether it’s to commemorate the arrival of a new baby, celebrate a birthday or ring in the holidays, a Shining Stars is the perfect gift for any occasion.?

This truly everlasting gift is commemorated by International Star Registry’s official star naming certificate – a great keepsake for a girl’s very own star!* And, parents will enjoy helping their daughter locate their star’s exact location on the special celestial map of the Andromeda Princess constellation. With its timeless nature and parent-child interactivity, Shining Stars is the perfect gift for girls of all ages.

Sent From the Stars

Each Shining Stars doll comes snuggled in a soft, star-shaped bunting carrier. When they’re taken out of their dreamy wrap, they gleam in celestial-print satiny pajamas that glow in the dark. With four pastel themes to choose from – pink, yellow, blue or lavender, girls can keep their baby doll cuddled in their favorite color.

Shining Stars dolls will be available nationwide in September for an approximate retail price of $29.99 and come in Caucasian and African American assortments.
